    I have no idea what kind of breed of chicken this is but my daughter desperately wanted them from Tractor supply. I got off lucky this time with only 6 hahahahaha. They are all black with a little white on the tips of the wings and light brownish on the bellies. Any help would be great thanks everyone.

    Agreed. They are hardy and friendly, egg laying machines. I've raised them for years (along with dozens of other breeds and hybrids), and they have been my best layers, consistently churning out more than 300 eggs per hen per year. I think you'll be very happy with them. :eek:)
